Quabit Inmobiliaria has engaged Dragados (ACS) and Sacyr to build two new housing estates that it is developing in Madrid and Barcelona, respectively. The two projects will involve a total investment of €28.2 million, which will be financed by CaixaBank, according to a statement made by the company.
The large construction firms are starting to undertake residential projects for third parties once again. In this case, the new homes form part of the growth plan that Quabit is working on, with the aim of completing 4,000 homes in 2021.
Specifically, Dragados, the construction subsidiary of ACS, will be responsible for building a luxury housing development that Quabit is promoting in the Madrilenian town of Boadilla del Monte.
The project involves building 12 homes, with a useful surface area of 450 m2 each. All of the homes will have six bedrooms, a plot of land measuring 1,000 m2 and an individual heated pool. The development will require an investment of €11.1 million, of which €5.7 million corresponds to the cost of construction, and 75% of the properties are already sold. The houses are expected to be completed by September 2018.
Two blocks of flats in Barcelona
Meanwhile, in the Catalan capital, specifically, in Sant Feliu de Llobregat, Quabit has engaged Sacyr to build two 7-storey housing blocks, in a single complex, with swimming pools and green spaces.
Specifically, the development, which will require an investment of €17 million, will contain 63 apartments of between two and four bedrooms, of which 75% have already been pre-sold. They are expected to be completed in October 2018. (…).
